Kindred Spirit focuses on my personal life experiences inspired from a fictional imagined vantage point. For instance, making the invisible visible, and transcending time by playing with memories/images from my past and present to come to a conclusion about how my future will look.
With this special gift of forever having the image of my sister within my face, I am able to recreate new memories both with and without her and capture it on film. My artworks relate to intuitive thought, emptiness and cognitive awareness: the feeling that time has stopped, or of an alternate dream-like universe. My connection to Emely has enabled me to use photography as a portal through which I occasionally rekindle a moment in time with her and continue making new ones.

Curatorial: Artworks in the Making
For one week, amidst the idyllic environs of Lake George, artists were able to contemplate, experiment, discuss, and create work without the many distractions of general daily life. The ten artists who attended the 2014 Openings Artist Residency, all from various and different backgrounds, found the time and the community that formed there to be so inspiring that they’ve decided to organize Lake 10, a group exhibition showing work that was either created during or inspired by the residency. Curated by Katherine Emely Gomez and Eric Jiaju Lee.
